Surface erosion will not be the largest contributor to flattening these mountains and scientists believe this process will take more than 1.5 million years just to start.

Before the terrain flattens, the mountains of Oahu will continue to rise in elevation as the island is pushed to the northwest. The mountains should continue to rise for 1.5 million years, explained scientists from the Brigham Young University.

December 21, 2012 marks the End of the Mayan Calendar

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 03:58:53 +0000

(image)

(Best Syndication News) - For years, the doomsday soothsayers have been forewarning of a doomsday scenario for December 21, 2012. NASA has received so many inquiries about this doomsday event that they have presented several discussions disputing the end of the world. NASA is so certain the end is not coming that they have created several videos debunking the doomsday predictions.

NASA says people are contacting them with various scenarios. One reason the agency has been contacted involves the idea that ancient Sumarians talked about a planet called Nibiru (or Planet X) that will enter into Earth's orbit. This Planet X could supposedly change the way the Earth spins; some people think that Noah's flood was caused by Nibiru. The Nibiru prediction failed the first time in May 2003, and then the prediction was moved to December 2012. NASA said that no such planet has been spotted heading our way.
